Local visitors will only need to pay RM1 for the entry while foreign visitors are charged RM5/adult. Visitors need to climb a 5 storey high staircase at the beginning to reach the cave entrance. The cave was not dark like Wind Cave. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. There were stones with humanoid and animal resemblances. There were stone paths along... More

We booked this with BExperience in Kuching and visited both the Wind & Fairy caves in one day. The Fairy caves are outstanding. We had the whole cave to ourselves and it was pretty magical. It had steps (lots of) for most part but it was a bit wet and a bit sloppy. It was also HOT. Worth the trip... More

I have travelled many places in the world, and it takes something really exceptional to make my jaw drop as far as it did when I walked into the first chamber of the Fairy Cave. It was like a sene out of a fantasy movie, only far more breath-taking. I still cannot believe the pure, natural beauty and the awesomeness... More

What a pity! Drove all the way from Kuching to find a sign at the cave entrance saying that due to flooding the Wind cave and the Fairy cave are closed. Better call before you go there!

We were staying in kuching and decided to go on a little trip as we heard this place was nice. We took a local bus to the town nearby and enjoyed and a taxi from there to the caves. It's a big cave with quite a bit to explore and some nice views alongside a cliff.

Quite a nice cave. There are some steep (and dark) steps when you first entered the cave. But it is worth it. A beautiful and stunning scenery is waiting for you. Just note that please bring sport shoes and torchlight with you.

It's a large, impressive cave. Can be reached by lots of stairs and climbing. Interesting chambers inside

The cave is 45min drive from the city. Stair to 4 floor to entrance. Couple of steeps again inside. But inside is very nice. So many natural architects. Looks like planed. Very nice. Must have torch light.

Nothing really new or fascinating. It is more for the Buddhist, I think.Or if you simply enjoy nature. We stopped by this place on our way to Serikin - where locals sell their goods at an affordable price.
